A New Lanugage

by Joel Kleier on 2014-11-01


I since September, Jonathan Blow, well known for Braid and the upcoming The Witness, has been publishing video "lectures" discussing his desire to create a language that he likes, specifically for games.

They’re long videos, but his informal presentation is very interesting, and more conversational than what you’d get if it were a more precisly planned and timed lecture or presentation. The tone he takes is refreshing — and his attitude towards building something he wants is inspiring.

I look forward to seeing what other ideas he wants to tackle with this language, and hope he decides to share the code, or at least binaries, for the compiler sooner rather than later.
